About Me

A fantastic communicator with an eye for detail. I liaise with other departments within the organisation and create and maintain excellent working relationships with external partners, contractors and clients. 8 year’s experience in design engineering and project management where I have carried out design works for lake and river restoration projects using Solidworks, Draftsight and auto CAD. The design of fish passes and easements, water control structures and bridges is of great interest to me and I have carried out numerous projects of this type. I have also carried out various habitat enhancement schemes on lakes and stretches of river implementing methods such as channel narrowing, flow deflection, de-siltation and vegetation management to achieve the desired effects and goals.
